A man has been charged after multiple thefts from vehicles across Norwich. 

Frankie Saich, 38, has been charged with four counts of theft, four counts of fraud by false representation and one count of vehicle interference on November 12 and 13.

This follows several incidents in which items including a purse, wallet, bank card, sunglasses, an iPhone, an iPad and a driving licence were stolen from vehicles around the city.

The thefts took place in Magdalen Road, Long Row, Clarke Road and Essex Street. 

Attempts were made to use the stolen bank cards to purchase goods.

Saich, of no fixed address, appeared at Norwich Magistrates' Court yesterday (November 20) and was released on conditional bail ahead of his next hearing on November 30.
